The City Civil Service Commission upheld his appointment last night during a hearing resulting from a protest filed by 4 other patrolmen. The protestors were represented by Atty. Lewis Khourey, former Canton service director, and Atty. George Kodak. Atty Khourey contended the Jan. 31 promotional examination was illegally conducted because it wasn’t held within 60 days after a vacancy occurred and also because certain patrolmen had not reached the maximum on the pay scale. The vacancy occurred in 1963 when Joe Zahler was promoted to captain. It developed after the meeting that Chief Garrison Groh did not formally request the sergeant examination until December, 5 months after Zahler’s advancement. During the hearing, Atty. Khourey said the commission had done an injustice to members of the department but did not call for invalidation of Bell's appointment. “The injustice stems from the fact that the commission has been lax in its duties,” the Canton attorney stated. “For the sake of the department’s moral the board had an obligation to See SERGEANT.
